Beautiful historic home with lovely rooms. Spotlessly clean. Well located for visit to university and downtown shopping. Very friendly welcome and great breakfast!

I just returned from an overnight stay at the Scholars Inn. I went up with 3 of my high school friends. The staff at the Scholars Inn was extremely nice and the breakfast was excellent. The Inn could use some updating and the upstairs was a little too warm as it was July. One drawback is that the Inn is not in walking distance from Kirkwood Avenue or campus. Our overall experience was good and I would stay there again but it would probably not be my first choice.

My husband and I stay at the Scholars Inn about 5 times a year. I would never go anywhere else. The people there are so nice and friendly. They go out of their way for you. The house is very beautiful.

The Website promised all rooms with PRIVATE BATHROOMS!
When I called to reserve the room they did not tell me that the
"private" bathroom was outside the room down the hall! Was I surprised to find a flashlight and a bathrobe provided in case I or my teenage daughter needed to use it in the night. All the other rooms
on my floor had a real private baths and I was surprised not to have been given one since there seemed to be other empty rooms with bathrooms. I would always ask now just to be sure that a private bath was a private bathroom as this was not very comfortable for us.

I'm amazed that no other reviewers have written about the Scholars Inn. I just had a delightful stay there in late May 2004. The rooms are charmingly decorated with lovely touches, avoiding the cute/kitschy. The king-sized bed was heavenly. Staff was friendly but also very courteous and polite. The breakfast was very good, with cheesy scrambled eggs, sausages, and fruit (you can request breakfast in bed if you like). My room overlooked a garden, and it was very peaceful. And don't' miss dining at the nearby Scholars Inn Restaurant (a few steps away from the inn). Dinner was excellent -- poached chicken in mushroom sauce and the best creme brulee I've ever had for dessert (plus it was half-price martini night). A luxurious, blissful experience, all for less than what you'd pay for a night at the Courtyard Mariott.
